The Southwest Journal has an article on the CB2 store coming to Calhoun Square. It identifies a November 1, 2011 opening date.
This week marked the beginning of the construction of a new CB2 store in Uptown Minneapolis. Work started with the demolition of an existing two-story retail/apartment building on the northeast corner of 31st Street and Hennepin Avenue. By the end of the day today, Thursday, the building was completely gone.
The CB2 store will be a stand alone building associated with Calhoun Square. The store is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2011. CB2 is the sleeker, younger, more loft-style version of Crate & Barrel. According to their website, CB2 operates 8 locations in 5 states and will open a store in Toronto and Washington DC later this year.
